McMom's Breakfast Sandwiches for the Freezer
My kids really love these sandwiches and I love the fact they make a quick and easy, no mess, no fuss breakfast. When I make them I make 24 at a time. Costco sells English muffins , 12 to a package and I buy two packages. But you can make less if you would like or more if you want to! :)
Ingredients for 24 breakfast sandwiches:
2 ˝ (or so) lbs. sausage
24 English muffins
12 slices cheddar cheese (I use real cheese, not American cheese)
I begin by cracking 20 eggs into a bowl and scrambling them up…
I spray an 11x15 inch pan with non stick spray and pour the eggs into the pan….
I bake them at 350 for about 25 minutes or until the eggs are cooked and the center of them is set. When they come out of the oven I cut them into 24 squares.
While the eggs are cooking I slice up the sausage..
I slice up 24 pieces of sausage and put them on a jelly rolls pan. When the eggs come out of the oven I put the sausage in (keeping the temps the same) and bake them for 20 minutes…
While the eggs and sausage are baking I prepare the cheese by folding it in half and then in half again so I have 4 quarters. I use 2 pieces for each sandwich…
To make each sandwich I begin by lightly toasting my English muffins and spreading them with butter. I lay two pieces of cheese on each half…
I continue toasting and buttering my English muffins. I lay one square of egg on the top of the cheese….
And then one piece of cooked sausage…
And then put the top piece on…
I continue this process until I have finished all of my sandwiches. I put them on a tray as I work..
When they are all done it is time to wrap them in plastic wrap…
After they are all wrapped I store them in gallon size zip bags (which I save and reuse for the next batch of breakfast sandwiches).. in the freezer…
When it is time to eat one for breakfast my kids warm them up in the microwave. With our microwave it takes about one minute. After 30 seconds the sandwiches need to be opened up to make sure the egg is defrosted and heated up. I had someone email and ask me if these could be heated up in a toaster oven. I have never done this but I don’t see why not. Remove the plastic wrap of course and then heat them up. Having never done this I cant say what would be the right temp, you will just have to experiment. AND.. if anyone does experiment and figures out the right temp and time.. please let me know! I would love to be able to share this..
Hope you enjoy!! :)
